She smiled at him. “Is your father the master of the heavenly law?”
After a pause, he looked at her with a big smile. “If you say so, then it is so. After all, you are the one who knows my father best. By the way, let me tell you more about the law of the stars. Every game actually represents the world. All the pieces on the board have the ability to affect everyone in that particular world. Every move could be a game-changer.”
The boy continued to share with her. Gu Xijiu quietly listened without interrupting. She also took the time to observe the two men’s styles of playing.
“Mother, let me tell you more about the respective pieces,” the boy offered more explanation, as he could see the confusion on her face.
Gu Xijiu shook her head and rejected him, “No need for that. I can tell their pieces apart.”
Dumbstruck, Di Hao was very impressed.
“Mother, have you seen them playing before?”
“No, this is my first time.”
“Mother, you are so smart, just like me.”
Gu Xijiu caressed his head gently and said, “Of course. How could I be your mother if I was not smart?”
“Mother, can you tell their style by now?”
Gu Xijiu took some time to put her understanding in order. “The master of the heavenly law is a relentless man who plays chess with unpredictable moves and kills pieces instantly for the sake of winning. He does not hesitate to sacrifice any pieces. The overall performance is quite brilliant. As for the man in black, he plays chess quite fast, too, but definitely with more caution. Sometimes, he gets indecisive and is reluctant to let go of some of the pieces that should be abandoned, but sometimes, he is quite harsh and will let go of the pieces that are still useful for the overall strategy. The man’s character seems a little dark, as observed from his style of play.
All in all, the master of heavenly law plays the game without any emotional interference, like a machine with no feelings. The man in black, on the other hand, carries emotions with him. From what I can see, the man in black will lose the game.”
Her explanation was thoroughly on point.
Di Hao was very impressed. Then, he took out a bag of chips and offered the snack to her, so they could both enjoy the game.
Gu Xijiu was right. The man in black had indeed lost the game. With a sigh, he complained, “It seems like I can never defeat you.”
The master of the heavenly law answered casually, “Your petty considerations have obstructed you. When you get distracted, you will be too afraid to lose, which is the sole reason for your defeat. When you finally learn to be at peace with yourself, perhaps you will win the game.”
After a long pause, the man in black responded with a chuckle. “Brother Di, as the master and the creator of the heavenly law, you certainly have to be tough and merciless. However, can you be sure that you will always remain this way, without any preference for good or evil? Can you always keep your emotions out?”
The master of the heavenly law finally caught something with his rod. Swiftly, he pulled a silvery-red fish from below. The beautiful fish remained enthusiastic as soon as it was out of the sea of stars. Then, it transformed itself into the form of an exquisitely dainty and ravishingly beautiful lady.
The lady was dressed entirely in silvery red robes. Lights danced in her eyes, as charming as the myriad of stars in the night sky. Anyone would be easily drawn to her flattering figure.
Gu Xijiu knew that she had seen the lady before, but could not recall when.
After being caught onto the canoe, she seemed frightened. Quickly, she fell to the ground and bowed before the master of the heavenly law. “My Lord, please spare my life. It is not easy for me to get to this point.”
The master of heavenly law looked at her smilingly. “I know it has not been easy. You have troubled the entire kingdom for the sake of your personal achievement. Millions of lives were plunged into the abyss of misery because of you.”
The lady started crying. “No, it is none of my business. The king made me do it.”
